    Picasa Work with Windows 8.1?

    Hi All,
    In looking at the Picasa website, it says that Picasa works with Windows 7, not Windows 8. Anyone tried installing it in Windows 8.1?
    Thanks,
    Bruce

    A Best Buy guy told me I can hook the two computers together with an A to A USB cable. I have not tried that as it seems unlikely that it would work and I don't want to do any damage. Thoughts?

    Thanks for this. It is a great website. It is amazing how complicated a computer is. I found what I needed, and you were right that it was the Windows Media Center that was interrupting the sleep.

    Re: Desktop Layout (SP1)

    I insalled Desktop Restore and it does the job for my Vista. Thanks Hans. Bob, the Vista right-click menu is not the same as the menu you showed. There is no locking feature -- that I can find.

    Desktop Layout (SP1)

    How can I backup my locations of favicons and shortcuts so when they get messed up I can put them back quickly? This happens when I connect a second display to my Toshiba laptop.
